Coming from the Latin words meaning ‘Water’ and ‘Comfort’, Bib&Sola is an exquisite and highly unqiue range of hand blown glassware paying homage to women water bearers across the globe; and for me calls to mind the familiar graceful depictions of African women with clay pots or tightly woven baskets perfectly balanced on the head having walked miles to fetch water; a vital resource for day to day life, and is a task done with dignity. Bib&Sola was established by Kira Heuer, a Southern Californian native who grew up by the ocean and in her bio refers to the impact water in its various forms has had on her life; from the enjoyment of surfing as youngster to the deeper need to raise awareness for clean water for all, having been spurred into action when she read an article in National Geographic highlighting the scarcity of water in parts of the world, with some shocking statistics accompanying it (Water Issue, April 2010).
